Dungen – “Marken Låg Stilla”

In 2004 I slobbered over Dungen’s Ta Det Lugnt, but none of Gustav Ejstes & Co’s earlier (Dungen, Stadsvandringar) or subsequent (Tio Bitar, 4) slabs of Swedish psych have hit me the same way or felt as important. Here’s hoping for a swift kick/return to mid-oeuvre form via sixth album Skit I All (promisingly translated “Fuck All”). Closer “Marken Låg Stilla” is a spacious lazy-day pastoral.
